In this article, we’ll see how to create a webserver using Apache2 to handle HTTP requests and GET requests.
We’ll also see how we can create a web service to be able to access the data we’re storing.
In this tutorial, we’re using apache 2.2.7 and Apache HTTP Server 2.0.
If you want to see a more advanced example, see our earlier tutorials on using Apache as a Web Server.
First, let’s create the webserver and its dependencies.
Open a command prompt window.
cd /var/www/html/htdocs/webserver.php Add the following code to the top of the file.
Use the $this variable to define the webservice’s location, or set it to a path you can find in your browser.
#!/bin/bash echo ‘Using: Apache2,Apache2.2.*,Apached HTTP Server (Apache),Apache 2.*,apache2-http server,ApocApiServer,Apacces,Apcpcs,Apcss’ > /etc/apache2/sites-available/web1.example.com/apache-wsgi-server.conf echo ‘Location: /var.example/html’ # This is where the rest of the site’s code goes, and the apache.conf file will be located.
echo ‘Apache configuration file’ # You can find this file under the /var directory, and set the ‘-D’ switch to disable the output of the command line options, # which is the default.
# echo ‘—‘ >> /etc / apache / apaches.conf # This will output all of the commands in this file to the standard error, so we can see what they do. echo ‘[Apache] Version: 2.4.17-pom.0’ >> $this / apc / apcs.conf You can now copy this to your web server’s location.
Now let’s open a web browser.
Open the Apache web server in your web browser of choice.
Type: https://example.org/web-server-name.php and press enter.
The page will open in your new webserver’s web browser and display the list of web server names.
You can search for a name in this list by pressing enter.
This should be the default, since you’ve already set the default location.
Type the name of the webservers web server into the search box and press Enter.
You should see a page with the following results.
You’ll be able access the webseries site by visiting the URL: http:/web1:8080/ You’ll also be able browse to the index of all the pages in this index by typing: http:://index.html You can change the page name by typing the page’s name into the URL bar and pressing Enter.
The list of all pages will also change.
This will include the default page that you’ve configured.
You might have seen a page named ‘Home’ that displays all the default pages.
If so, then you should use that.
Now that you have your default pages, you can move on to the next step.
Add the new pages to the list.
Go to the new page, which will be ‘Home’, and press CTRL+F2 to open the new browser.
Click on the “Edit” button in the upper-right corner.
This opens the “Web Browser” menu.
You will see the “Browse” tab.
The “BrowSE” tab has many options, and you’ll see a lot of them here.
Here are a few that I like: *Change the URL* To change the URL that the browser will use for browsing, you’ll need to use the “url” option.
To change it to something else, press CTRL-V.
You’re now ready to start using the new web server.
If everything is configured correctly, you should see the new “Home” page with a link to the current index.html page.
You have two options for navigating to the page.
One is to press CTRL to bring up the menu, and type the URL into the browser’s address bar.
The other is to use CTRL+V to bring the browser up, and enter the URL.
If both of these options are used, the browser should navigate to the appropriate page.
If they’re not, the page won’t show up.
*Check for changes* When you’re done browsing, it’s time to make changes to the site.
Press CTRL+X to close the menu.
Click the “Home Button” and click the “Save Changes” button.
The changes you made to the server are now in place.
If the changes are still not there, the server should close automatically.
If your changes aren
